I received some question from our customer regarding the “PTP Boundary Clock as Slave”.
Some links I founded:
I googled a bit and so far I can tell a few things and I installed a few tools.
According to the output of ethtool
$ ethtool -T eth0 Time stamping parameters for eth0: Capabilities: hardware-transmit (SOF_TIMESTAMPING_TX_HARDWARE) software-transmit (SOF_TIMESTAMPING_TX_SOFTWARE) hardware-receive (SOF_TIMESTAMPING_RX_HARDWARE) software-receive (SOF_TIMESTAMPING_RX_SOFTWARE) software-system-clock (SOF_TIMESTAMPING_SOFTWARE) hardware-raw-clock (SOF_TIMESTAMPING_RAW_HARDWARE) PTP Hardware Clock: 0 Hardware Transmit Timestamp Modes: off (HWTSTAMP_TX_OFF) on (HWTSTAMP_TX_ON) Hardware Receive Filter Modes: none (HWTSTAMP_FILTER_NONE) ptpv1-l4-sync (HWTSTAMP_FILTER_PTP_V1_L4_SYNC) ptpv1-l4-delay-req (HWTSTAMP_FILTER_PTP_V1_L4_DELAY_REQ) ptpv2-l4-sync (HWTSTAMP_FILTER_PTP_V2_L4_SYNC) ptpv2-l4-delay-req (HWTSTAMP_FILTER_PTP_V2_L4_DELAY_REQ) ptpv2-l2-sync (HWTSTAMP_FILTER_PTP_V2_L2_SYNC) ptpv2-l2-delay-req (HWTSTAMP_FILTER_PTP_V2_L2_DELAY_REQ) ptpv2-event (HWTSTAMP_FILTER_PTP_V2_EVENT)
It shows that TX2 does has a HW time stamping capabilities.
I would like to configure and verify that TX2 is capable to work as PTP Boundary Clock as Slave.
Thanks in adavance
